When record buyers started to embrace the new wonder of stereophonic sound towards the end of the 1950s they realised that the added dimension allowed them to hear and appreciate far more of the music than had previously been possible. Conductors and arrangers adapted their styles to take full advantage of this leap in the technology of sound reproduction, as already demonstrated in the recent Guild CD “Strings And Things Go Stereo!” GLCD 5153. In this collection there are further examples of superb performances from the orchestras of George Melachrino, Nelson Riddle, Angela Morley, Robert Farnon, Percy Faith, Morton Gould, Les Baxter, David Carroll – and even the London Symphony Orchestra playing one of Eric Coates’ most popular melodies.
